This Actually Happened

I have always preferred Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup for my protesting and rioting. I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I want to fight for basic human rights I always hit the Market Basket first and stock up.

I’m pretty sure that’s what my Great Uncle Jimmy took with him into battle during World War II.


In all seriousness… either our president is a clinical lunatic, or he believes everything he reads and he just happened to see this in The Onion, or something similar. Either way… he’s fucking insane.

Sports on Strike

I was proud of the NBA yesterday for striking over idiotic racial inequality. When the news broke I looked at the calendar and saw a Bruins game and a Red Sox game.

The NHL is operating entirely in Canada so it didn’t surprise me that none of the teams joined in. A few Major League Baseball teams participated, but the Red Sox? Historically speaking, the most racist franchise in the multiverse? I was optimistic or a minute or two, but deep down I knew they were going to play.

Today the Red Sox and the Bruins both joined in. A day late and a dollar short maybe, but I’m still glad they are a part of this. I’m glad they are doing the right thing… finally.

He’s Finally Building a Wall

The fascist cheeto orange crush said he’d build a wall, and now he is… around the White House. He said yesterday that when he was rushed to a bunker during the protests the other night he wasn’t hiding, it was just an inspection.

So tell me, donnie, is this for an inspection too?

Is Mexico paying for this one too?

We the people… Right? It’s time for the rest of the Federal Government to demand he resign. This is just ridiculous now.

The Fascist States of America is the laughingstock of the world. Rightly so.

Resign, you nazi twat.

Mars

Remember that company a few years ago that was looking for volunteers to start a colony on Mars?

The more I follow current events the more I think that actually moving to Mars for the rest of my life is a really good idea. Of course the “rest of my life” part would probably be less than a minute, but it still sounds pretty tempting.

If you have a problem with Black Lives Matter, or Coronavirus lock downs, or LGBT rights, or equal rights, or anything like that, why don’t you just go ahead and close the browser window and forget that this silly little page exists.

Sound good? M’Kay? Thanks

Pedals… or… RIP My Fulltone Pedals

Sometimes it sucks having a conscience, but what’s a red head to do.

Look back through this page and you’ll read me singing the praises of a guitar pedal company called Fulltone. Also notice that you never see me singing the praises of a guitar pedal company called JHS, but that’s another story.

I own three Fulltone pedals. Two are OCD overdrives which are hands down the best higher gain overdrive pedals I’ve ever played. The third is a Clyde Deluxe Wah. I have been chemically dependent on wah pedals since the first time I heard “White Room” back when I was in Junior High School and I will go to my grave feeding that addiction. I’ve owned a bunch of wah pedals over the decades and the Clyde Deluxe is so much better than all of the others that there is no comparison.

Fulltone is a guy named Mike Fuller. Yesterday he posted some stuff about the Black Lives Matter protests that make me never want to touch any of his stuff again. I hate it when politics get in the way of something unrelated to politics, but I have to listen to my conscience because, unlike many of my fellow Americans, I like to think I’m a decent person.

Mike had it out with a guy who runs the “Fulltone Pedals” Facebook page yesterday and some screen shots were posted to reddit. I am going to try and post them here but I don’t know if reddit requires permissions to view their images without a login. If you can see it, cool. If not, oh well.

So I have an OCD on both boards. On the main board I will replace it with the Dan side of the Keeley D&M Drive. That circuit is based on the OCD and it sounds fantastic. I don’t know what I am going to do for the back up board. Is it time to buy a Rat? For the Clyde though…

I’ve never played anything that was even close to as good. I don’t know what I’m going to do about that. I’ll have to buy something. Wah pedals are like water to me, I can’t live without them for very long. I’m looking for suggestions. It’s research time.
